Microrobot Ubot a Hybrid?
Korea has been catching up very quickly in the robotics field. Microrobot introduced their Ubot at CES 2007 - Las Vegas. This home cleaning robot is unique because it can sweep and mop your floors at the same time! It also can support a very interesting IR barcode navigation system. No need to use messy toxic liquids and purchase two separate robots to do both jobs, Ubot take care of these issues with ease. Currently you can find a USA / English speaking version from Microrobot less than the price of a Roomba and Scooba! Only downfall is that it's taller than other cleaning robots so it may have difficulty getting under some furniture. Look for an upcoming review of this nice robot.
